Kill The Minotaur, the current Skybound title by writers Christian Cantamessa and Chris Pantesso along with artists Lukas Ketner and Jean-Francoise Beaulieu, has been optioned for film by Universal Pictures.
The Skybound series retells the classic Greek myth of Theseus and the minotaur.
“Christian and Chris have ingeniously taken one of the most ancient of horror stories and spun it into a vital sci-fi thriller. We’re excited to work with them on translating this great comic into the electrifying movie it deserves to be,” said Skybound Entertainment CEO David Alpert and co-presidents of TV & film Sean and Bryan Furst in a joint statement.
“When we created the comic we wanted to put our own spin on a classic Greek myth, incorporating strong relatable characters and spectacular scenes so it would read like a blockbuster movie,” added Pasetto and Cantamessa, jointly. “It’s a dream come true that we can now make this story come alive on the big screen."
This would be part of Skybound's overall 'first look' deal it signed with Universal back in 2015.
Kill The Minotaur will be co-produced by Skybound and Universal Pictures. No cast, crew, or release date has been announced.
